Winchester Palace Rose Window Geometry

A4 / 297 x 210 mm / 18 pages / full colour

Winchester Palace was built in Southwark, London, in the 12th century as the London home from home of the Bishops of Winchester when they were visiting the capital. All that survives is the footprint of the great hall and a gable graced with a circular rose window. The article analyses the window's form and then describes the geometrical stages that generate the rose as it survives today, commencing from compass drawn daisy wheel geometry.
